Thank you so much for Saturday – the band and all of the other music was excellent and I have received so many compliments.
Thank you so much for bringing incredible music, amazing energy and a full dance floor to our wedding! We loved having you and the band to play and have had incredibly positive feedback from so many guests. Moonshine was FANTASTIC!

Dear Dan, Thank you so much for everything!! Everyone raved about Moonshine! It was truly an epic event and would not have been the same without you all!

Dan, Everybody commented on what a great band you guys are and how you all seemed to really enjoy yourself and get into it. Some people even said that this was best party they attended for years! Please thank all your band members once again on Lee Anne's and my behalf!
Hans & Lee Anne
Dear Dan, I can say unequivocally that having Moonshine at our wedding was one of the biggest highlights of the day! You guys blew everyone away. It was such a pleasure working with you and I will recommend ShoutMC at every opportunity. Meg was wonderful too. Thank you again.
Marianne & Greg
Dan!!! You guys were INCREDIBLE!!! No one will stop raving to us about you 🙂 You made a special day so much more special and we’ll be forever grateful. The band was great, the sound was great, the whole vibe was just amazing. Did you guys manage to squeeze in a bit of a game drive before you left? We saw Romy off at the airstrip and then got a text of a photo from my best man with Ndumiso at the airport! Photographers said it might be up to 12 weeks to get all the pics back but once we have them we will send your way 🙂

Dan!!! Words cannot describe how awesome, amazing your team are and were. From DJ AJ, all the members of Moonshine, Evan the sax who rocked it out for everyone!! It was just very special and made the night most memorable, So thank you to you all!!
Dan, The music was fantastic. It was an absolute treat for us. Unfortunately we kept getting distracted by others! Haha... it was great and there were so many positive comments from both outdoors as well as the dance floor. Thanks again. Martin & Riani.
